Petit Clos by Clos Henri Sauvignon Blanc 2013, Marlborough, New Zealand

0003204_clos_henri_petit_clos_marlborough_sauvignon_blanc_750mlDave McIntyre keeps the sun shining this week recommending a number of summer wines priced under $20 writing in the Washington Post.

He said: “Henri Bourgeois is a major producer of Sancerre in the Loire Valley, the spiritual home of Sauvignon Blanc. This is the winery’s effort to bring a French sensibility to New Zealand, which captured the world’s attention with its racy style of Sauvignon Blanc in the 1990s. One could try to parse the Old World-New World comparison, but why not just enjoy a well-made wine that reflects the character of the grape and the place where it’s grown?”

Price: $17
